Why did you take off the particles?
UT OH! I did the original headhunter as well as the rework and I thought they looked similar to me. I have some tasks I need to complete but I'll try and take a look at it. Hang tight, I'll need to carve out some time in my schedule, sorry I failed

Hey man, glad to see you checking out what is in most opinions, a now downgraded skin.

(Was totally going to buy it then saw it didn't look as good new as it did old, even though it had been 'upgraded').

I agree. Headhunter Yi is a little disappointing at its current state. It used to be the best looking Yi skin but now it's just meh

Have you every played street fighter 3? Would you could do (that would be balls to the walls awesome)
you could leave after images during Highlander like Yun does in Street fighter 3/4

Yeah, I was sad after the rework. I bought Headhunter a long time ago and now I actually prefer Chosen, Assassin, AND Samurai over Headhunter. /cry

headhunter skin used to be da best; no triangle feet, pretty particles, giant sword
now it looks so bland in comparison to the old refurbished skins ='(

Yeah - this needs a little touch-up to make it more apparent because one of the listed selling points of the skin was that it had a unique Alpha Strike.

Thanks, dude.

I apologize for the delay. I got sick, had a pile of work to do, etc, etc. I also wanted to do a thorough investigation before I replied.
So I pulled up his Alpha Strike particle from Vi's build and looked at the particle logic/content and it's the same. There is an animation of Yi slashing around that I'm playing through a particle. From what I can deduce is the old Headhunter Yi only played this animation and the new Yi plays this blended with the new rework particle. So it's there but it's sharing the spotlight with others now.
Hope this helps and I hope you are still enjoying his rework.
Cheers!
